Valentine’s Day has always been a popular day of the year to get married. After all, who wouldn’t want their anniversary to fall on the most romantic day on the calendar?
If you have a wedding booked for next Valentine’s Day and are starting to make your plans, we’ve got some seriously dreamy Valentine’s wedding inspiration for you.
Valentine’s colour scheme
We don’t know about you but one colour springs to mind when someone mentions Valentine’s: pink! Pink is a fabulous colour for a wedding colour scheme. It’s soft and romantic, and there’s a shade of pink to suit any bridesmaids you may have. The groomsmen and ushers might need a little more persuading.
If pink is not your cup of tea, you could always go for a daring deep red, another shade associated with romance and love. We can picture a sumptuous red rose bouquet, paired with gorgeous burgundy bridesmaid dresses and a slick of dark lipstick for the beautiful bride. Perfect for winter weddings that fall in February, this colour has a rich and luxurious feel and offers a totally different take on the Valentine’s theme.
Incorporate hearts throughout your wedding styling to keep the Valentine’s wedding theme consistent. From heart-shaped wreaths hanging on the door of the church or wedding venue, to heart-shaped cupcakes in every shade of pink you could dream of, we adore the idea of having these symbols of true love throughout your wedding. You could hang three-dimension hearts from the ceiling, display heart-shaped balloons and offer your guests heart-shaped cake pops!
Valentine’s wedding favours
Here’s where you can have a lot of fun with the theme! Why not give your wedding guests a pack of the classic sweets, Love Hearts? They make a perfect wedding favour. You could even have them personalised with your names and the date for a lovely keepsake. Heart-shaped candles (or lollipops for little ones) are also a great idea.
Everyone loves a traditional white-iced wedding cake and your guests will be even more impressed watching you cut the cake as husband and wife to reveal layers of decadent red velvet cake beneath the pristine white! We also love the idea of an ombre cake, perfect for a pink colour scheme. The layers fade from deep pink, through delicate rose to perfect white, for a classy cake that will look fabulous on your photographs.
